There was no twerking or licking of sledgehammers during Miley Cyrus’ appearance on “Saturday Night Live.” The pop star avoided controversy while hosting and performing on this weekend’s episode. During her monologue, she addressed her VMA performance, Hannah Montana (“She was murdered”), and twerking.
“In case anyone’s concerned, there will be no twerking tonight,” said Miley. “I used to think twerking was cool, but now that white people are doing it, it seems kind of lame.”
She played a slutty Michelle Bachmann in a sketch called “We Did Stop,” which parodied the government shutdown by recreating her racy music video. Other skits featured her as Hilary Clinton and a hip-hop-obsessed high school student.
In anticipation of Tuesday’s release of her album Bangerz, she performed her No. 1 single “Wrecking Ball” and an acoustic version of “We Can’t Stop.”
